Handheld radio, Hi Vis vest, Licence, Log book, spare pens/markers, fuel dipper and other odds and sods (underpants). I suppose if one owns an aeroplane a lot of this stuff can be left in, I don't, and so have to assume that none of this is available.

I’ve always carried a change of clothes in my flight bag just in case after one bad experience. I’d argue the knowledge you’ve everything you need removes one little source extra mental pressure in the event of a diversion.
The emergency cash stash (euros and sterling) is also very good advice. Ask me how I know
I work for the company, but hey, don't let that fool you. I'm really an OK guy...
Two types of licence Logbook Spare glasses CRP1 Spare contacts Little pouch with some cash Pair of thermal cotton gloves A couple of pens/pencils Tablet Anker power brick thing Aeroplane keys A survival kit in a tobacco tin ( a present from my son)
Private flying, local flight/land away, then no bag.
Just my A5 kneeboard, a pen, headset, chart. If flying aeros just headset and chart. If flying the Cub just chart has been known.
Licence in pocket, driving licence in credit card holder and always carried. I’ve not carried cash for a long time. Mobile phone in pocket.
My logbook rarely leaves the safety of my house. I do have logbook.aero on my phone though. Not sure why I would ever need that with me, I’ve never been asked to produce my logbook except for FCL applications.
Imagine what you might try if you thought you could not fail...
